Well, I am toun'd to admit there is truth in the writer's remarks; [for Sydney winters are to an Englishman but a I pleasant parody upon their severe and dreary days I from November to March, so that our spring has I not quite the resurrectionary charm of those loved 1 and ...

SOME CURIOUS CALCULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 September 1886

SOME CURIOUS CALCULATIONS, The letters posted in England and Wales alone amounted in 1885 to 1,148,000,000. Taking the length of an ordinary envelope to be five inches — these letters, if placed end to end, would stretch a distance of more than 90,593 miles. That is to say, more than 140 times the length of Great Britain from Dunnet Head to Lieard Point. If made into a belt, these letters would reach three times round the world. It would take a man, counting a hundred a rcinute, and working twenty-four hours a day, and allowing not a moment for rest, food, or sleep, nearly twenty* two years to count this number. In Scotland the letters delivered amounted to 123,000,000. Calculated in the same way, if placed end to end they would reach a distance of 9706 miles, or 1792 miles further than the diameter of the earth. In Ireland there were 89,000,000 letters delivered. These, if placed end to end, would stretch a distance of 7028 miles — that is more than eleven times the length of Great...

GENERAL ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 September 1886

GENERAL ITEMS. Over 2000 tons of American wheat arrived in Sydney on the 7th instant. A miners' strike at Woollongong is considered to be inevitable. Not Lithgow this time. Among the recent contributions to the Zop are a native cat, a duck-billed platypus, a green monkey, a pair of Webb's 5s. lid. trousers, no zebras, and a young lyre bird. Why not a pair of /jackasses, and complete the list 1 The Centennial 15 days' ' Drink,' as it is now termed, seems to bo ' too much ' for most sensible men. No doubt, the completion of the railway to Circular Quay would be a great event. What about completing the new houses of Parliament? The opening of an enormous mileage of railway all over the colony is something worthy of the occasion, and ought t-) be aimed at.

HELEN'S BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 September 1886

ft EMEU'S BABIES. rCOJJTLKDBD.l ' Now give us the candy,' said Budge, witli the usual echo from Toddie. I hastily extracted the candy from my trunk, gave some to each boy, the recipients fairly sbriek ing with delight, and once more said good-night. u Oh, you didn't give us any pennies,1' said Budge, ' Papa give us some to pat in our Banks, every rugnts.' ''Well, I haven't got any now — wait until to-morrow.' ' Then we want drinks.' ' I'U let Maggie bring you drink.' ' Want my dolly,' murmurred Toddie. I found the knotted towels, took the dirty things up gingerly, and threw them upon the bed. 'Now want to slice wheels go wound,' said Toddie. I hurried out of the room and slammed the door. X looked at my watch — it was half-past eight ; I had spent an hour and a half with those dreadful children. They were funny, to be sure — I found myself laughing in spite of my indignation. Still, if they were to monopolize my time as they had already done, when was I to do my reading? Taking Fisk...

HELEN'S BABIES. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1886

HELEN'S BABIES. £coNTi**0isto.3 My trunk h*4 contained nearly everything, for while ft campaigner I bad learned to reduce packing to an exact science. Now, had there been an atom of pride ) in my composition I might have glorified myselF, for it certainly seemed as it the heap upon the floor could never have come out of a single trunk. Clearly Tpddie was more of a general connoisseur than an amateur in packing. The method of his work I quickly discerned, and the discovery threw some light upon the sisse of the heap in front of my trunk. A dress-hat and its case, when their natural relationship is dissolved, occupy nearly twice as much space as before, even if the former contains a blacking-bor not usually kept in it, and the latter contains a few cigars soaking in bay rum. The same might be said of a portable dressing-case and its contents, bought for me in Vienna by a brother ex-soldier, and designed by an old continental campaigner to be perfectipn itself. The straps which prevent...

HOW BILLETS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1886

HOW BILLETS ARE MADE. ' I don't suppose,' writes a well-known pastoralist to the Daily Telegraph, ' you will believe the fol lowing story ; however, it is true : — An inspector of C.P.s had a district he could easily manage. It was cut in three parts to make billets. This was oot enough. Each inspector had an assistant given him, and this gentleman states that there are six men doing the work he could easily do.

So they move the court to each of these towns, and thus spread the work over several weeks, and the result is that the selling of an acre of land costs the country more than is paid for it.' We hope that any of our country readers who may know of similar abuses of political influence and depart mental extravagance will expose them...

The London correspondent of the Evening News, under date October 9, wires as follows : — Mr, John Norton, the Sydney Trades and Labor delegate, has been seeking an interview with Mr. E. Stanhope. the Secretary for the Colonies. Mr. Norton's object was to place before Mr. Stanhope the reports he had received from the Trades and Labour Council in Sydney in reference to the state of the labour market in New South Wales. Mr. Stanhope de clined to see Mr. Norton, stating that if Mr. Norton had anything he wished to present to the Home Government from the New South Wales Govern ment it must be forwarded in the ordinary channel, viz., through Lord Carrington, the Governor of the colony. Mr. Norton has replied to this denial of his request, and states that the labour bodies, whose delegate he is, would not consent to such a course, on the ground that their reports would not only be privately criticised by tho3e who were not in sym pathy with ...

ANOTHER FIGHT IN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1886

ANOTHER FIGHT IN PARLIA MENT. The precincts of the Legislative Assembly have again been disgraced by a scene of rowdy revelry. While the Divorce Bill was being discussed in the House on Friday night, some of the honorable am. tlemen discussed other matters in the refreshment room. The principal figures in the debate were the member for lllawarra and the member for Newtown. Mr. Gibbes is, as a rule, very free of speech, and it appeared that on Friday night he was more expres sive than polite. Mr. Lysaght discovered grounds for complaint in something that Mr. Gibbes had said. There was something like a demand for an apology. The demand was refused, and words led to threats. Then it became a cause of ' up boys and at it.' The first attempt to close was a failure. The guardians of the peace were too strong. However, desperate men always find ways and means with which to wreak their vengeance. The opportunity came, and Mr. Lysaght struck out straight from the shoulder. Mr. Gibbes receive...

NEARLY PLAYED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1886

NEARLY PLAYED OUT. It is only a few months since that the credit of New South Wales stood at the top of the tree in London, and when we wanted one-and-a-half rail lion of tnoner, three or four times the amount was offered to us. What with a continuation of bad seasons, low prices of wool and other produce, and also other cmtui, we are fast becoming a ruined colony. In bad times the weak, indolent, and bad managers always come to grief ; and; unfortunately, sometimes the strong and careful are unlucky, and trip where they frequently have succeeded. Colo nies, like tradesmen, must be affected by the sea ions, and also by their management. If the seasons. art bad» then the management must be more careful and economical to meet the falling off of rerenue occasioned thereby. On the admission of Mr. Dibbs into our present administration we prognosticated its speedy down fall. He bad proved himself a complete failure as Colonial Treasurer, and worse than that as Premier; wby on earth he sh...

A USELESS GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 October 1886

A USELESS GAOL. All the prisoners convicted in the Walgett Sessions Court last week had to be sentenced to Narrabri Gaol, as the local gaol just completed in Walgett «t a cost of £5000 has not been proclaimed a public gaol. The Judge expressed surprise at this delay. The consequence is that the large and costly local gaol, which is quite as commodious as the Narrabri prison, is merely used as a watch-house. The prisoners have not yet been removed to Narrabri. Unless the Government proclaim the local gaol, a useless waste of the public money will ensue in the cost of the transfer of the prisoners. The people ef Walgett intend to hold a meeting on the subject. — [Another way in [which the public money has been squandered.] The Upper House must look out for ' squalls.' They have already been informed that if they are not careful some new blood will be sent up there. Sir Patrick had best go himself. The intimidation is rather amusing at least to those who understand it. The amount paid ...
